A built BRZ motor is better than using an STi motor. It's been shown you can make as much torque as the 2.5L with the 2L since it has direct injection, a more advanced AVCS system, etc.
However, there are some drift teams who have done EJ2xx swaps and the STI Japanese touring car uses one as well, but they are both still RWD. Given the room in the front and the layout it would be easier to put an Evo motor in one if you wanted to go AWD. There is just no room for a traditional Subaru AWD layout.
